0004252: Restless spirit unable to be put to rest.
This has been a multi abandon/reclaim fort, this is the third reclaim.

In the first year, my miner met with an unfortunate end tot he magma sea. With no picks, no metal, nothing really dug out, and no anvil, I abandoned rather then leaving my dwarves stranded.

Two reclaims later, and that same spirit is still haunting the fortress, and there is no option to put the spirit to rest. The body cant be recovered, and his name doesn't show with the engrave memorial command.

This is the same fort as 0004249, after an abandon/reclaim. There have been no further crashes.
Try to engrave a memorial slab for the ghostly furnace operator.

Not being able to engrave a name after reclaim is discussed in 0003708:0014160.
